Great milkshake?

Any suggestions for a great milkshake? We are staying in Marigny if you happen to know anything close. But we'll travel for something very good.

  1. Dunno about great, but Tru burger on Oak has milkshakes, as does the Milk Bar on Delachaise (or is it Aline?). And the mocha freeze at Camellia Grill isn't technically a milkshake, but it is quite tasty. Doesn't Stanley have shakes?

      Yes. Stanley does have shakes, and they are thick, rich, and delicious!

        +1 stanley... plus you can mix & match -- chocolate + peanutbutter ice creams, woot.

          Also should have mentioned the boozy grownup shakes at Sucre.

    2. I don't remember as i don't pay much attention to "sweets" but I would think Ihe American Zone at the WWII museum would have quality soda fountain offerings.

        Americn Sector's shakes are awful, and should be skipped.

        CC's are good, not great

        Stanley's are quite good, and very close to where you are staying.

        Camelia Grill's chocolate freeze is similar to a frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity, and is very refreshing.

        Tru burger approach MVB, but I still think MVB are a smidge better.

          just back from American Sector and i can concur -- three of us all agreed their shakes are weak. small, melt-y. would not get again.

          1. re: kibbles

            Stanley shakes definitely don't have that problem.

      2. Creole Creamery in Uptown is outstanding.

        Creole Creamery @ 4924 Prytania Street, New Orleans, LA 504 - 894 - 8680.

            +2...great excuse to hop the street car!

          2. re: Littleman

            Not sure about shakes but CC has the best malts anywhere.

            1. re: N.O.Food

              MVB serves great shakes made with Sucre gelato. I suggest going to Sucre for one.

              1. re: N.O.Food

                I know I should know but...what is CC?

                1. re: ilikeNOLA

                  I would bet that cc is creole creamery.

              2. OP here. We ended up getting shakes from Creole Creamery. Yum. We still talk about that place weeks later.
